International Association of Forensic Nurses

AEquitas has worked in partnership with the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN) since 2009 to provide technical assistance to individuals and agencies utilizing the National Protocol for Sexual Assault Medical Forensic Examinations. While the protocol was designed to lay the foundation for community based responses to sexual violence, the SAFEta technical assistance project is an extension of that effort.

AEquitas is also partnering with IAFN to produce a series of state specific presentation recordings on sexual assault laws.

IAFN is international membership organization comprised of forensic nurses working around the world and other professionals who support and compliment the work of forensic nursing. IAFN is the catalyst for universal access to forensic nursing care for patients impacted by violence and trauma and the recognized authority on forensic nursing.
